Naughty Dog have released a slew of new screens for, the extremely impressive looking, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The screens show off some of the new environments you’ll be battling your enemies in, your new lady friend and a gruftier (damn you Ian!) looking Nathan Drake (above). Take a look at the gallery below.

Game Informer’s Uncharted 2 Details by Anthony Barlow

The people of the interwebs were nice enough to supply me with all the juicy gossip from U.S. magazine Game Informer on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and here I am giving it to you dear reader. Here’s just a few notes that GameFaq’s member ‘Maddognick96’ decided to post.

– The biggest thing in the article IMO is that there’s a new girl named Chloe Frazer. GI asked about Elena and Sully’s return but they had no comment.
– The story is about looking for the ships that Marco Polo “lost” while returning home to Italy.
– Melee combat is more dynamic now.
– They mentioned they were using only 30% of the PS3’s power with Drake’s Fortune and are planning to use nearly 100% with Among Thieves.
– A demo was shown to GI with Drake going through a city (I believe in Nepal), and he’s stealthily taking out guards and escaping the city.
– Nolan North returns to be Drake and Chloe Frazer is played by Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Fargate).
– The Sixaxis mechanics were ditched for such things as throwing grenades.
– One of the weapons revealed is a rocket launcher that Chloe uses (might only be for the cinematic).
– There are no load screens.
– The score is being composed by Greg Edmonson (same guy from the first one).
– Weapons can be used in any stance (running, behind cover, hanging, climbing a wall, etc.).
– You can now move while aiming behind cover.

I think it’d be nice to see the return of Elana & Sully, but this new girl sounds interesting. Surprisingly, the stealth gameplay sounds pretty good and i’m glad they’ve got the voice actor (s) and composer from the last game as the audio was pretty sweet. Other than that, everything esle seems pretty cool. I loved Drake’s Fortume, here’s hoping Among Thieves is just as good. I might just have to head down to Borders and get a copy of this myself.

It’s official. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves┬áhas been announced, and were loving every bit of it. The original Uncharted: Drakes Fortune was one of the games that helped the Playstation 3 really come into it’s own as a worthy household system, and we can expect great things out of this sequel. Naughty Dog knows what they’re doing, so I have absolute faith that this game will be another hit. If you want proof that the game has been announced, check the teaser after the jump. And also, obviously, there is no set release date. Continue reading

News has come in from PSM 3 that Naughty Dog are working on Uncharted 2. Instead of doing an Insomniac and jumping back and forth between their two key franchises it looks like ND want to focus on Nathan Drake for the tme being.

No more details as of yet, but i’m sure we’ll here something more substantial soon.

Uncharted 2 At Leipzig? by Anthony Barlow

According to my sources, Sony and/or Naughty Dog are planning to announce ‘Uncharted 2’ (electric boogaloo, perhaps?) at Leipzig this year. Not heard anything more on this yet but i’ll try and extort some more information from my source and any other rumors he might have.

The rumor that’s been going around for a while now is that the game will be set in Atlantis and will once again feature Nathan Drake. This seems quite possible and could be cool, but is once again unconfirmed. Some mocked up box art is above.



Uncharted Has Been Patched – Version 1.01 Released, Trophies! by Anthony Barlow

It’s here and it’s well before the expected August 22nd drop date. The ‘Uncharted: Drakes Fortune’ trophy patch has arrived and I haven’t picked up the game yet. As expected the trophies mirror the in-game ‘achivements’ so those who have completed the game with all of this stuff are bound to be a little pissed off. I’m one of the many who didn’t do this so i’ll be great to get into the game again. Hey I might even go and pick it up now. It has also been rumored that the UK/Europe version is the only version of ‘Uncharted’ to have been patched so far, at the time of writing there is no conformation of this but I wll try and find out.

No news yet on the full list of trophies available but i’ll try and get it to ya ASAP.
